    The phrase occurs in the Tanakh a fair amount of times.

    What does your religion/sect/etc. believe it means?

    My denomination is letting that definition float. We prefer to criticize what other people say about it.

    Perhaps an unhelpful verse to help us get started is: [Heb 4:9 NIV] "9 There remains, then, a Sabbath-rest for the people of God;"

    It depends.

    I hope every day I get possessed by the Spirit of the Lord to diligently obey and do his will and maximize my potential.

    So, every day is supposed to be "the day of the Lord" for me, but it is usually me fighting God, trying to get him to change his mind.

    But I hope today is the day of the Lord, and it is about pondering what God or spiritual entities have done in my life, their many signs and wonders, surrendering, trying to obey, praising God where praise is due, contending with God where that is due.

    Also, I'm inspired by Moses getting God to change his mind about destroying Israel in the wilderness, so I try and stand in the gap for humanity, to get God to be more nice and change his mind.

    In the case of Moses, that vocation saved the whole nation of Israel.

    It's my ideal "day of the Lord", but I'm a work in progress. :p

    I would also like restore the temple and see Israel a Spiritual Theocracy without being how secular it is, but obviously that isn't my place and I'm lacking qualifications, but am praying for a Messiah! :)

    This is my personal opinion because I'm not aware of any common understanding related to that phrase.

    I take that "day" to be the period of time when the great dark ages that has lasted since recorded history finally ends and the New Creation flowers. It is the time when the great divides of our world such as between wealth and poverty starts to disappear.

    In Islam, it would be Juma'a [ Friday]
    In Judaism, the Sabbath day is Saturday.
    ..and for Christians, Sunday. :)

    I have always liked Sunday, as my roots are in Christian culture.
    It is a blessing.

    I believe there is rest in Heaven but that is not dependent on the day of the Lord. I suppose the Kingdom of God could be a rest and that does take place at the end of the world.

    I believe there is always change. People sometimes don't like the changes. When I was growing up there was no burger joint in my home town. Now there is a McDonalds. I suppose I will miss it when the world ends.
